/* ipmask.c
 *
 * Given argv[1] as a decimal netmask and argv[2] as a decimal IP address,
 * print the resulting broadcast and network addresses to stdout.  This is
 * potentially useful in scripts which need the broadcast address and the
 * network address but want to ask the user as few questions as possible.
